Participating in FIRST is an expensive enterprise. Many teams require members to pay annual dues. Thankfully, we are able to raise the funds we need to operate through two venues: corporate sponsorship and a letter writing campaigns. With this approach, almost all of the team’s expenses can be paid for without dipping into the student’s pockets. We are constantly expanding our prestigious group of sponsors. We enjoy maintaining healthy and long lasting relationships with many of our corporate supporters. Through their support, we are able to provide a robotics experience for a very diverse group of students.

We would like to thank all our generous supporters, whether they are corporations or family friends. Without the aid of our benefactors, this program would not be possible. With the resources they supply, Team 100 can help further students’ education in engineering, science, and technology for the challenges of tomorrow; preparing the next generation of engineers and innovators.
